    Has anyone been successful in upgrading to Win XP Media Center Edition

    I purchased Sony Vaio desktop that does have a TV Tuner built-in, but comes with the Win XP Home Edition. As part of my MSDN subscription, I downloaded Win XP Media Center and upgraded my Windows installation. The installation went fine, however, the Media Center software doesn't work (i.e. I cannot watch TV or downloaded a Program Guide).

    Any advice

    Thanks in advance

  2. You'll need to do a clean install. An reinstall (or repair installation with
    the MCE key) doesn't cut it.
